Kat Burdine will discuss her work and the possibility of engaging within the space we lose when our understanding of self, relationship, and community is controlled by language. We’ll think about social empathy, female masculinity, and the importance of transitional spaces through the lens of humor and disrupted modes of making.
Burdine is a Cleveland-based artist working with prints and objects to disarm expectation and embrace the awkward consequences of socially assigned narratives and the ways we carry them.
She has participated in regional residencies such as Talking Dolls in Detroit, and collaborated internationally on various social and visual projects.
She is the founder of Wondershop Studio in Cleveland.
Kat completed a master's degree in fine art at Cranbrook Academy of Art and is currently teaching at both the Cleveland Institute of Art and Cuyahoga Community College.
This event is presented with support from the Ellen H. Johnson Endowed Fund for Contemporary Art.
